Project Type: New Construction
Project Overview: This breathtaking 6,000 square foot vacation home located in the rocky mountains features two master suites, boys’ and girls’ bunk rooms and an additional guest room. A craftsman wine cellar on the first floor and an additional living room on the second floor with ski-in access to nearby hills make this home beautifully functional for entertaining and for hitting the slopes.
A highlight of the home is the great room on the third floor. Warm, neutral colors echo the natural surroundings and lend softness to balance the clean, modern lines. An eye-catching hearth was desired as a dramatic focal point, and the LUX gas fireplace by Heat & Glo served perfectly as the striking showpiece the room needed.
Designer Donna McAlear explains.“We designed the overall stone veneer fireplace mass so that it visually and physically wraps from inside the open-plan living room wall around to the exterior deck. The fireplace mass is a dominant and central architectural feature that’s key to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen space.
